Ron Paul
I don't wanna get all political and stuff but I really enjoy hearing what Ron Paul has to say. So I'm making a post about it. I especially enjoy his quips and comments in debates. He ran for president in 2008 and made a name for himself and he is running again in 2012. Now I know it's too early to really get involved in the next election for some people but I really think it is important to stay at lease a little up to date on what is going on. I don't find myself to be on one side or another on the political spectrum in relation to how most people lump political views up in the United States of America; I keep it pretty neutral as I look for the good in different political parties while having a keen eye for all the fluff that is passed back and forth between them. I am constructively critical of a lot of things whether liberal or conservative. With that said...

I don't agree with everything he has to say, but the biggest and most important things I look at in relation to someone running for president (foreign policy, education, domestic economics, etc.) seem to be lined up pretty close with Dr. Paul compared to all the other candidates I've heard about on both the republican and democratic sides. Here is a link to some clips from the republican debate that happened on the 13th. Check out the Los Angeles Times' article here that talks about Ron Paul's applause level during the debates.
